The first fully integrated multi-GPU toolkit to craft unique Cinematic Film Looks through Film Lab Processing, Grains, Textures, Details.


Soup simulates the development of the photographic emulsion through the traditional film processing chain. In addition to imparting film sensibilities to digital footage, Soup simulates looks associated with the outcomes of irregular film processing, primarily through control of the develop cycle with pull or push processing, developer concentration, agitation, replenisher, diffusion, and silver retention (bleach bypass). In emulating LUT-free Kodak and Fuji cine negative and print stocks, Soup’s film profiles can be fully customized through primary controls for exposure, silver sensitivity, offset, soft clips, shadows, midtones, highlights, and six-vector secondary controls for saturation, hue, chroma, and vibrance. Soup works in over 50 Camera and workspace gamuts at full 32-bit floating point precision per channel.

Cinematic Film Grain


Cinematic Film LooksReverator Cinematic Film look

Add cinematic-quality grain to your grades, camera profile LUTs, creative look LUTs, Film emulation LUTs, and negative and print LUTs. Unlike blended overlays of Film scans and simulated grain textures that float on top of footage, Reverator – just like real Film – flips the script whereby footage is ingrained. As your Film grains define the image sensor, your S-curve tonalities are transformed into natural grain expressions of silver halide’s undulating sensitivity to light, yielding film-like Dmin and Dmax with options for pure blacks and whites without grains.

For precise Film stock emulations, grains can be independently modeled for each color plane. Leverage the vast expanse of authentic looking grain Size, Granularity, Softness, Shape, Density, Strength, Dispersion, and Motion for unrivaled matching of existing shots. And with Agfa, Fuji, Ilford, and Kodak absent from the set, what’s preventing you from creating your very own new and improved color and black & white Film stocks.

Film grain motion and variable optical jitter can be used to impart organic film grit, warmth, and realism to digital footage that’s just too clinical looking. By adding subtle Film grain, your footage is perceived as having more depth and containing more detail than in grain’s absence. Realistic Film grain textures can also supplement denoising outcomes of higher ISOs, or mask color banding, or suppress compression blockiness.

Textures Enhancer, Details Enhancer, Aperture Corrector, Image Resizer

Cinematic Film LooksCinematic Film Looks

Reverator produces natural looking outcomes through a single global Textures and Details slider, doing away with awkward controls found in other filters. Presets automate sizing to and from common Video, HD, UHD, Film, and D-Cinema formats. Alternatively, take manual control over Textures and Details at any resolution with Pan, Scan, Fit, or Crop framing. When not resizing, Aperture correction restores the finest details lost in Film scans with – or without – accentuating subtle textures. The image Resizer also enables bypassing of the Textures and Details enhancers.

Texture Pitch

Reverator’s Texture Pitch enables one to selectively reduce or increase the appearance of “Texture”. For natural looking outcomes, six texture bands emphasize or de-emphasize the boldest to finest textures. For example, local features residing in one band – such as fine-sized pores – can be accentuated or diminished without affecting medium-sized skin textures residing in another band. Texture bands can be used for a variety of effects, including denoise, bloom, clarity, and local contrast enhancement. In conjunction with Reverator’s Soft Clips, Texture Pitch can defocus blown highlights. A bypass button toggles the effect.

HDR Compensation

Reverator is perfect for High Dynamic Range (HDR) and the latest Ultra Wide Gamut (UWG) workflows. Reverator’s Soup, Texture Pitch, Textures and Details enhancer, Aperture corrector, Resizer, and Film grain generator all perform intelligent gamut-extents suppression. Reverator’s Soft Clips can provide cinematic renditions of Speculars and Highlights. And when used In conjunction with Film grain and Texture Pitch, a cinematic blooming effect can be applied to overexposed areas. One can also manually set lower and upper limits on color gamut extents.

Precise Control


Cinematic Film LooksCinematic Film Looks

As fine adjustments are made to your Cinematic Film Look settings, you can temporarily change the “Grain dispersion” mode from random to constant. This way the same grain pattern and orientation persists frame-to-frame, making it less distracting as you dial in your Cinematic Film Look. Your adjustments can be monitored by isolating viewing to planar mode, blocking out grain interference from other color channels. Here, the masking effects of Film grains on the Resizer, Texture Pitch, Details enhancer, and Textures enhancer can be closely scrutinized.

Save and Recall Plugin Settings


Cinematic Film LooksCinematic Film Looks

Over 85 Customizable settings can be saved and recalled from disk. The same text-editable plugin settings file can be run by the power-user from a standalone terminal / command line interface (CLI). Scripted image sequences from the CLI run faster than through the OpenFX plugin as more buffers remain in place from one frame to the next. Over 20 Still image formats are supported, with each color channel processed at full 32-bit floating point precision.
